Fellowships and Opportunities for Graduate Students
CTL offers a number of fellowships for graduate students that offer stipends and unique, structured professional development experience. Additional paid professional development opportunities for graduate students entail training and support to offer CTL teaching support services to peers. Priority for these opportunities is given to applicants who are enrolled in the Teaching Development Program, have completed the Essentials of Teaching and Learning series, and/or have completed a CTL seminar for graduate students.
CTL calls for applications during the spring and early summer for fellowships in the next academic year. Please send any questions about these fellowship opportunities to CTLgrads@columbia.edu.
Lead Teaching Fellows
The Lead Teaching Fellow (LTF) program is an interdisciplinary professional development initiative for Columbia doctoral students. LTFs receive stipends for producing teaching-related workshops in their home departments, and connecting peers to teaching resources.
CIRTL Fellows are an instrumental link between the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) network and the Columbia community. They leverage CIRTL Network resources to support evidence-based, inclusive teaching and mentorship practices in Columbia’s STEM communities.
Teaching Observation Fellows
Teaching Observation Fellows are Columbia University doctoral students who work closely with the Center for Teaching and Learning and with each other during the academic year to better design, implement, and assess elements of teaching.
Teaching Consultants are paid an hourly rate to provide various teaching development support services for peers across the university. These include CTL Teaching Observations, Practice Teaching (Microteaching) sessions, Mid-Course Reviews, and individual consultations.
Teaching Assessment Fellows
The Teaching Assessment Fellowship immerses graduate students in strategies for evaluating the efficacy of teaching. Participants engage in analysis of teaching projects proposed by Columbia faculty and funded by the Office of the Provost.
Graduate Student Advisory Committee
This special committee advises CTL on ways to engage a range of diverse student communities across the Columbia campus, and generates community-centered input on graduate student teaching support needs, CTL offerings, and effective modes of outreach
The CTL is here for graduate students.
The Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning provides an array of support for graduate students in both their current and future teaching responsibilities.
